After ending the most notable winning streak in the NBA this season, the Milwaukee Bucks head to Los Angeles to try to hand the Lakers their seventh consecutive loss.

Milwaukee comes in on a nine-game road losing streak but has to be riding high after beating the previously undefeated Golden State Warriors on Saturday.

"We have to build on this," Bucks Center Greg Monroe said to Stats LLC (h/t ESPN.com). "We have to take the things we did tonight and carry over to next game. Definitely the energy, the intensity we played with, how we played together."

The Lakers are hoping that Kobe Bryant continues his recent hot shooting stretch, which saw him put up 25 points on Saturday against the Houston Rockets.

"It's like my rhythm is starting to come back a little and my legs are moving pretty well," Bryant said to Stats LLC (h/t ESPN.com). "I'm feeling good. I just worked and continued to run and lift and just hoping for the best."

The Bucks and Lakers are among the least efficient offenses, with Milwaukee averaging 99.1 points per 100 possessions and Los Angeles averaging just 96.8.
